Kate Protage, who has shown her work at Greenwood’s Bherd Studios, is one of six finalists for the City Arts “Best of Artwalk Awards.” Protage’s “Exhibit A” from her March show at Bherd was selected as one of the winning entries.
Protage is now up against five other Seattle artists for a chance to win $1,000 and a spotlight in City Arts Magazine.
The winner will be announced on Thursday at the awards party at Fred Wildlife Refuge, 127 E. Boylston. Doors open at 8 p.m. for the 21-and-over event. Admission is free when you RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org with ART WALK in the subject line.
In 2011, four winners will each receive $1,000 and a profile of their artwork in City Arts magazine. Together with our 2011 partners, the Art Walk Consortium, businesses and galleries that participate in neighborhood art walks can nominate a favorite piece of art for each month. Each spring, summer, winter and fall, we narrow dozens of submissions down to six finalists, and then throw a party in their honor (with delicious and free Blue Moon seasonal beers, music, food and more). Anyone attending the event gets to vote for the winner and we’ll hand out the award that night.
